I live at the foot of the Smokies, (Murphy, NC) and try to attend the spring run and fall run. It's only about an hour from where I live. Actually this car show covers a whole town and a big one at that. There is a pavillion in the center of town (MGM Grand Hotel) that holds the most prestigious cars but the way the town is set up people park their cars all along the whole street for people to look at. They come from everywhere even with vendors. In the fall they have 2 shows a week apart. One is called "Shades of the Past". It is for the older cars ("A" models etc.). A week later they have the regular "Fall Rod Run". There is shopping and motels right along the strip. If you get tired of walking and looking at the cars you can set on the balcony of your room and watch them being driven. Some people have cabins for rent but you have to act early because they go fast. I know this sounds like an advertising pitch but it is just this way.

Hope this helps explain.

I've been to "Shades" a couple times. The first time by accident.
We were camping in the Smokeys and started seeing all these streetrods about mid week.
By the weekend, there were a million (seemed like) cars all over the place.
It was great. We went back a few years later just to attend the car show.
One thing we should plan is a trip on the Tail of the Dragon.
I've been wanting to do that for years. Not time trials, no, the cops will bite you hard, but just a nice drive down/up a twisty turny mountian road.

Here's a couple movies that were made on parts of the Dragon:
The first feature film made on US 129 was Thunder Road. This 1958 Robert Mitchum film about backwoods moonshining actually had scenes filmed on the Dragon. One location that we can identify is at the power line easement at about mile 4.5 on the Dragon map and you can see the old wooden "safety" posts on the open corner. A couple of the posts still remain.

Darrin Roberts told us that part of the 1971 classic movie Two-Lane Blacktop was filmed on the Dragon. There are scenes of the state line sign, some of the curves, and the original single lane bridge at Tapoco *** (assumed expletive-won't print: structure that holds back water.j55). There are also scenes along 129 on the Little Tennessee River. We were amazed to see the original Deal's Gap diner and Esso gas station in the film too. These scenes are at the end of the movie.

Here's a page with links to tons of stuff about the Dragon.
Especially look at the driving tips, law, and truckers.

Any good camping grounds around there. I'm a serious backpacker in my spare time (so not in the last 4 years) and I think I would rather stay outside. Higher altitudes have amazing night sky's. Plus its hard to sneak off with that car and I can sleep next to her.

I have not been able to find a website for the Smoky Mountian Classic Chevy Club.
Do they have one?
Do I have to preregister?
Found it.
Someone probably has listed this link already but here it is again.
Still says 2007
http://www.smokymtnclassicchevy.org/
I just shot the webmaster an email asking if there is a up to date page.
